The AZoM.com "Materials Thought Leaders" series is a selection of articles that cover the key technology areas where materials are making an impact and where they will make an increasing impact. All the articles are written by experts who have been invited as recognised leaders in their fields to provide a "state of the art" contribution.
AZoM speaks to Michael Jewett, a researcher at Northwestern University, about a novel process using bacteria to capture CO2 and convert it into the useful commercial chemicals acetone and isopropanol. This could bring us closer to a circular bioeconomy in the chemical sector.
This International Women's Day we spoke to Dr. Pooja Devi, a Principal Scientist at the Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO), about her career, inspirations, and the participation of women in STEM.
AZoM spoke to Dr. Ruzena Bajcsy, who at 89 years old is Professor Emeritus at UC Berkely and the University of Pennsylvania after leading an impressive and broad-spanning career in STEM.
In the lead-up to International Women's Day 2022, AZoM spoke to Ohemaa Adjei Andoh, founder of Girls in Science and Technology (GIST) and the PM STEAM Educational Center in Ghana.
AZoM talked to Ailong Li, a postdoctoral researcher at RIKEN, about his research that has developed a green catalyst for the production of hydrogen energy. This could revolutionize efforts to leave fossil fuels behind in the production of clean energy.
AZoM spoke to Dr. Vibha Kalra, George B. Francis Chair Professor and the Director of the Ph.D. Program in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Drexel University, about her research that has made a breakthrough for the use of lithium-sulfur batteries.
AZoM talks to Mehren Ghasemlou, a research fellow at RMIT University, about his research that has developed a self-cleaning and biodegradable bioplastic that is inspired by the lotus leaf.
AZoM talked to Zewen Zhang, who worked in collaboration with Professor Yi Cui to image the solid-electrolyte interphase in lithium batteries. This novel imaging technique could pave the way for next-generation battery technology.
AZoM talks to Dr. Daniel Abraham about his research surrounding lithium-ion batteries, and fast-charging rates in particular.
AZoM speaks to Professor Yi Cui and Dr. Fang Liu from Stanford University, California, about their groundbreaking research into lithium batteries. The researchers have found a way to revitalize 'dead' lithium in batteries and hope that their work will make way for extended battery life and less battery wastage.
